Gallatown Roundabout is a junction between Kirkcaldy and Glenrothes.

History

The junction was originally planned as a roundabout interchange with the A921 passing above or below the roundabout and then following a new alignment to the east of the current road between here and Redhouse Roundabout. The intention was to provide a direct high standard route between Kirkcaldy and Glenrothes. Plans for Glenrothes, like many new towns of the era, were scaled back and the planned road network was reduced accordingly. Had these plans come to fruition there would have been an incredibly short weaving section between the two junctions.

The only known maps showing the original proposal for the junction. It is unclear if the south facing slips are deliberately missing from the left map or just an error.
